However, since the size of the above-mentioned keyboard with a limited space of one-person assistant is relatively small compared to the individual: the palm is too small, so a traditional keyboard is not suitable for personal digital assistants. 4. Referring to FIG. 4, it depicts the diagram of the personal digital assistant of FIG. 3 after entering some letters. Mother's day pat''402 has been entered into the personal digital assistant 300. Using a conventional touch keyboard, the user will have to use a stylus to continue searching and selecting 'to complete the input of the desired text or phrase. The invention provides a new touch screen keyboard, which provides a faster input method. -8-This paper size is applicable to the S ® Home Standard (CNS) A4 specification (21GX 297 public 1232341 A7 B7 V. Description of the invention (6 Refer to Figure 5, its description-according to the invention _ has-customizable keyboard The diagram of the personal digital assistant. Like the personal digital assistant 200 in Figure 2, the personal digital assistant is implemented, and the personal digital assistant lake includes a display 502, a customizable keyboard 504, and a Data input area 506. In this actual case, 'in order to facilitate user input, the user can conveniently input the personal digital assistant 500 to customize the keyboard 504. In the example described here, The user dynamically customizes the keyboard 504, and presents the letters in a 1; type format, and the other letters and function keys are presented in the middle or lower area. In the example I, the above letters are surrounded in alphabetical order. U-type keyboard to set. However, you can also set the letters in other ways, for example, you can set the letters according to the frequency of the selected language. In addition, although the letters are set clockwise, the letters can also be set. By user's choice Choose to set it counterclockwise. Right-handed and left-handed can choose the direction that suits them best. By presenting the letters in a U-shaped pattern, the user, especially the placement of the keys on a standard keyboard If you are unfamiliar, you can easily find the letter you want to input. Furthermore, by setting the letter with a ϋ or round shape, the user can use a circular motion of the hand and use a pointed pen to select the appropriate letter. Because of this action Unlike other letter settings, which often need to change direction, this action is convenient for the user. In its π embodiment, the user can specifically select the arrangement of each letter in, for example, a traditional keyboard arrangement, or use some Shape (such as the U-shape described above) to select the order of the letters. For example, the letters may initially be displayed on the bottom of the display 502, and the user uses a stylus or other input method. -9 This paper size applies to Chinese national standards (CNS) Α4 size (210 X 297 mm) 1233041

It is not possible to drag and drop the buttons in the desired setting. Similarly, the customization of the keyboard can be implemented as many times as the user needs. Therefore, 'users can customize the keyboard to the desired setting for the desired data input type, and after that, users can customize the keyboard again for different types of data input types that they think are more needed. Success—different settings. Furthermore, different users can use the same device, and each user can customize the keyboard as needed. In another embodiment, the user may, for example, enlarge the size of some keys (for example, if there are vowel keys), change their shape, change their color, change their 4 * & size or shape, or make Animation to emphasize these keys. Therefore, for example, the user can choose to animate all frequently used vowels. If the user often uses numbers, the user can also make the numbers larger. Moreover, it is not just to provide the user with a way to set the keyboard again. In other embodiments, the customizable keyboard includes hints about which letters are most commonly used or may be used next time. (Such as those described in detail below). Furthermore, in other embodiments, the keyboard may be reconfigured periodically according to, for example, frequently typed or frequently typed text by the user. Therefore, the above reconfigurable keyboard can be reconfigured to emphasize the keys that are frequently input. Alternatively, in other embodiments, the keys that are often typed incorrectly may be enlarged or emphasized, thereby reducing the number of spelling errors entered by the user. Similarly, in other embodiments, when the user inputs a key, the personal digital assistant 500 may generate an appropriate distinguishing sound. For example: when typing ,, a ,,

When the invention description (8), one of the personal digital assistant 500's speech synthesizer will issue ,,,, , Voice of Voice will help users who often make typos or cannot see the keyboard clearly. In its Έ: example, the user may wish to reconfigure the size of the keyboard layout ’to adjust the user ’s hand movements and the flexibility achieved by the target. For example, older or younger users with lower-level subtle muscle movements may choose or give a larger keyboard, while users with higher-level subtle muscle movements may choose a smaller arrangement, although Reduce the entire action distance 'but need more accurate hits on the target letter area. In addition, a customizable keyboard 504 can be used in conjunction with the input prediction techniques detailed below to help users enter data. Referring to FIG. 6 ', a description is given of a program flow and program functions for customizing a keyboard presentation of a customizable touch screen keyboard according to the present invention. First, the personal digital assistant may prompt the user to select a preset or customized keyboard (step 602). The preset keyboard may be, for example, a keyboard similar to a standard keyboard used by a typist. The personal digital assistant then determines that the user selects a customizable keyboard or a preset keyboard (step 604). If the user selects the above-mentioned preset keyboard, the personal digital assistant presents the preset keyboard on the display of the personal digital assistant to the user (step 6 1 2). If the user selects the above-mentioned customizable keyboard, the personal digital assistant presents the keyboard-customizable option to the user (step 606). The above-mentioned customization options may be only a selection of some predetermined keyboard formats, or the user may be allowed to select from some options to produce a customizable keyboard. The other options mentioned above may include selecting the shape and size of the button and setting the button in the selected shape. Once the personal digital assistant receives a customized selection from one of the users (step 608), then -11- this paper size applies the Chinese National Standard (CNS) A4 specification (210 X 297 mm) 1233041 A7 B7 V. Description of the invention ( 9) The personal digital assistant presents the customized keyboard arrangement to the user (step 610), and waits for user input. Referring to FIG. 7, a diagram of a personal digital assistant with an improved touch screen keyboard according to one embodiment of the present invention is described. The personal digital assistant 700 is implemented like the personal digital assistant 200 in FIG. 2, and the personal digital assistant 700 includes an improved customizable touch screen keyboard with text or letter prediction technology. The personal digital assistant 700 is similar to the personal digital assistant 300 in FIG. The personal digital assistant 700 includes a display 702 and a touch screen keyboard 704 with an input area 706. However, unlike the conventional touch screen keyboard, after the user has entered one or more letters, the personal digital assistant 700 determines that the letter or letters may be entered next time and displays the above-mentioned letters 708-714. Therefore, in the current example, the user has entered the letter "pat" into the input area 706. Accordingly, the personal digital assistant 700 emphasizes the letters "e''708, nt''710,` `〇''712, and ' '11''714. These letters can be selected by referring to a font library, confirming the text that started with the letter entered by the previous user, and displaying the next required letter to complete each confirmed text. A personal digital assistant can identify all possible characters and the letters required to display each character. Alternatively, the personal digital assistant may confirm all possible texts in a group, and the above-mentioned text selected with the displayed letters that must be used to complete the text is the confirmed text of the personal digital assistant as a text with a higher probability of use. Text. This probability may depend on the likelihood of occurrence in the language (eg, English), or on a known possibility of the occurrence of use by a particular user of a particular script. Therefore, one that is very common in general English use is -12-This paper size applies to the Chinese National Standard (CNS) A4 specification (210 X 297 mm) 1233041 A7 _________ B7 V. Description of the invention (1〇) A particular user may not be ordinary, so the letters that must be used to complete the above text are not presented to this particular user. The method of forcing the mother can include, for example, increasing the font size of the emphasized letters, displaying the TF emphasized letters shown in FIG. 7, changing the color of the emphasized letters, or ^, for example, by blinking the emphasized letters. Let's animate the emphasized letters. Other methods can be used to emphasize the selected letter. For example, the highlighted letter can be moved or copied to a more prominent position on the display 702, such as close to the input area 706 or located below the input area by confirming the possible letters that the user may enter next time, Eyes will be attracted to the above letters, compared to the need for the user to look at each letter on the keyboard to find the next letter to be entered, allowing the user to select the next letter faster. In the above example, the user has selected a preset "General, keyboard." However, the above prediction technique can also be applied to other options of the customized keyboard. Go Λ Refer to FIG. 8, which describes a method according to the present invention. One embodiment of an improved customizable touch screen keyboard with predictive technology. Once again, for example, the personal digital assistant 200 as shown in FIG. 2 is implemented as a personal digital assistant 800 (as the personal digital assistant 700 is implemented ). The personal digital assistant 800 includes a display 802-, a touch screen keyboard 804, and an input area 806. However, in this embodiment, it is not to confirm that the user wants to input the next The possible candidates for the letter and the emphasis on the above letter 'are to confirm that the text starting from the letter that the user has entered into the display area 806 and which will be used to form -13-This paper size applies the Chinese National Standard (CNS) Α4 specification ( 210X297 mm) 1233041 A7 B7 V. Description of the invention (

The suffixes 808-816 necessary for the above Wenfeng are presented to the user in a prominent area of the display 802. Once again, the above suffixes 808_816 may be the suffixes of each text confirmed by the personal digital assistant 800 as a possible candidate, or the suffixes 808-816 may be only those confirmed by the personal digital assistant 800 Toyao, as the suffix of the most likely text above. Confirmation as a more or more reliable text (for example: English, French or Spanish used in personal digital assistant displays) can be performed according to the frequency of occurrence in the language, or can be confirmed by personal digital assistant 800 The above text is based on past use as the most commonly used text for a particular user. In the above example, the user has entered the letter "pat" into the input area 806. The personal digital assistant 800 has identified 5 possible candidates for the text the user wishes to enter. These candidate texts are ,, patent ,,,,, pauer ,,, "patient", " patios ", and" path〇s ". Therefore, the proposed suffix is finalized

"Ent" 808, "ter" 810, "ient" 812, "〇is" 814, and "hos" 816 are presented to the user. The user may, for example, tap or double tap the area on the display 802 with the desired suffixes 808-816 to select one of the above proposals. However, if / there is a suffix that forms the user's desired text, the user can continue to enter letters using the keyboard 804 until the desired text, phrase, or alphabetic string is entered. Since it is not necessary to input the remaining letters of the text or phrase separately, the user can complete the input of a text or phrase faster by presenting the above possible text suffixes to an obvious position on the display 802. Therefore, the data input device provided by the personal assistant 800 allows a user to enter data in a faster way than using a conventional keyboard. -14-1233041 A7 B7 V. Description of the invention (12) Therefore, the personal digital assistant 800 is modified so that the personal digital assistant 800 can display the predicted letters that may be entered in the input area 806 after displaying the letters or the user's wishes The predicted phoneme or syllable to be placed next time is in the input area 806, instead of presenting the predicted text suffix option to the user to complete the above text. (A phoneme is any abstract unit of the speech system of a language, which corresponds to a group of speech sounds considered to be a single unique sound in the above-mentioned languages). Alternatively, the personal digital assistant 800 may present some of the possibilities described above to a user. For example, the personal digital assistant 800 may present the predicted text suffix and the predicted next letter to the user, perhaps on different lines of the display 802. Therefore, the option of completing the above text is presented to the user by presenting one of the optional suffixes or one of the predicted letters in an area that is more prominent than the remaining letters on the display 802, thus allowing use Those who find the above text faster. Although it is possible to present to the user an almost unlimited range of possibilities, it is desirable to limit the amount of predicted suffixes, letters, syllables or phonemes to a fairly small number, which is at least less than the number of letters , Otherwise the user will again face the problem of searching for a considerable range of possibilities for the desired input. Another alternative is to provide a temporary display of the selected letter in a group of letters after giving a single tap with a stylus, and only enter it when giving a single or two or two taps with a stylus. Therefore, for example: after typing the letter “en with a stylus pen, the display will show as follows, where“ e ”is the fourth letter placed in the above text: pate_ -15-This paper size applies Chinese National Standard (CNS) A4 Specifications (210 X 297 mm) 1233041 A7 B7 V. Description of the Invention (13) e / tioh Then, after typing in with a stylus, "t ", replace" 4 "with the following letter: patt et / i〇h "/ · represents a single stylus entry, and after each entry, the previous text will be replaced by the letter entered by Mu Li. After the second typing of a letter, the letter is temporarily entered, and the input point is moved to a right space. Therefore, after clicking the letter "e" twice, the display will show as follows:

Pate —— e / ti〇h Therefore, a second tap on the letter "e" will cause it to be temporarily input and move the input point to the right space. The term "temporarily" means that you can use a back arrow or delete key to delete a letter that was clicked twice and entered the above field. The same method can also be extended to the group of letters, which can be used once or Double taps to input them temporarily. Referring to FIG. 9, it shows a program flow and program function for confirming the predicted letter and the main predicted letter to a user according to the present invention. At the beginning, the individual The digital assistant receives user input (step 902). Based on the received user input, the personal digital assistant predicts possible candidates for the next input (step 904). The predicted candidate may be, for example, the next letter Prediction, or leftover letters to form a word 1 The above predictions can be -16 This paper size applies Chinese National Standard (CNS) A4 specifications (210 X 297 mm) 1233041 A7 B7 V. Description of the invention (14 is based on the possibility of occurrence It depends on the frequency of occurrence in the language or the frequency with which certain users have used the text in the past. Once the predicted candidates are identified, the individual digits The controller presents the predicted candidate to the user in an obvious manner (step 906). The above presentation may be, for example, emphasizing certain letters on the keyboard, or presenting the predicted letters or suffixes in a prominent area of the display The personal digital assistant then further receives user input (step 908) and decides whether the user has selected one of the predicted candidates or one of the other options (step 910). If some other options have been selected, Personal number 2 The assistant implements the required functions, for example: input only one letter, which is selected by the autonomous keyboard and is not one of the predicted candidates. If the user does choose one of the predicted candidates, then The personal digital assistant enters the selected candidate above into a previously entered user data position (step 912). Although the present invention is mainly described with a digital assistant, for those skilled in the art, The present invention can also be applied to other types of touch-screen displays, regardless of whether the touch-screen is presented in a A digital assistant or some other type of data processing system. For example, the present invention can be implemented on a radio telephone with a touch screen interface.
